What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Nothing says serious

...like a woman with braids, bandana, and apron.

Yep. Whenever I braid and bandana myself, you know I mean business.

What sort of business??! The drippy kind.

Today, among other things~ I am doing a marathon baking/cooking session so as to accomplish as much as I can before our company~so that our time can be spent VISITING and not cooking.

Here is what I hope to accomplish today:

~Make apple butter muffins
~Make double batch of Cheddar Sausage Strata
~Make Hashbrown casserole
~Bake SKOR cake
~Make caramel peach muffins
~Bake Jumbo Molasses cookies
~Make Brownies
~Cook some chicken for Chicken Dinner

As you can see from the looks of my kitchen, I've got a good headstart.

Here's what I've accomplished so far...

~Cooked 1# of bacon
~Cooked 3# sausage
~Baked peach muffins
~Maked Apple Butter muffins
~Made Molasses cookie dough (chilling, as I type)
~Shredded 2# of sharp cheddar
~sliced about a quarter pound of Pepperjack cheese

This is my kitchen in all it's unfinished glory. I could pretend it was just that all the cupboard doors are opened because I am a worker bee today but alas, t'would be a lie. Even to this day only SOME of the cupboard doors are painted, the rest are not and (obviously) none are hung. And the two up top that ARE hung, I'm going to ask Matt to take down. I know I know, make up my mind already.

Just pretend you don't see them. And I hope my guests are gracious enough to do the same....
